Doug Aitken’s Art in Context with Roni Feinstein

This fall we are pleased to announce a new course with instructor Roni Feinstein.

Doug Aitken’s Art in Context

This class takes as its point of focus Doug Aitken: Electric Earth, an exhibition that offers the opportunity to review work of the past twenty years by this groundbreaking Los Angeles-based artist.   Aitken is best known for his pioneering work in video art, which not only rethinks the parameters of video in terms of the architectural spaces it might inhabit, but also with regard to narrative and content.   Any number of other artists, among them Bill Viola, Diana Thater, Pipilloti Rist and Ragnar Gunnarsson, also work with multi-screen video projections and Aitken’s work will be considered in relation theirs.  Aitken’s artistic practice also includes photo-based work, sculpture, collage, Earthworks, multi-media performance, participation pieces and more and these too will be related to work by his contemporaries.   It will be seen that while parallels maybe drawn between Aitken’s art and that of others, there is much that is unique and that sets his work apart.  Defining these qualities will be among the class’s aim as the exhibition is explored in depth.
